The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new online video series documenting the Association’s in-person Insulating Glass (IG) Fabricators Workshop.

This series has been under development throughout 2021 and offers a condensed version of the workshop in ten 20–30-minute segments. It is now available for purchase in the FGIA Online Store. Non-members can purchase the series for $500 (USD), while FGIA members receive a discount rate of $250 (USD).

“This video series is an excellent option for those who are unable to travel to our IG Fabricators In-Person Workshop held each November in Plano, TX,” said Janice Yglesias, FGIA Executive Director. “Now, individuals or entire teams can learn the basics of glass safety responsibilities, insulating glass design, forensic testing and more from their comfort of their homes or offices.”
